Invisalign is designed to push and tug at your teeth just like traditional wire-and-bracket braces. The goal is to gently shift your teeth into a straighter alignment with proper spacing for each individual tooth. But Invisalign accomplishes this task through the use of clear, almost invisible aligners.
As a Gold Plus Invisalign provider, iSmile Dental specializes in creating highly effective orthodontic treatment plans. Your dedicated dentist uses advanced iTero® digital scanning technology, which quickly and clearly allows you to see a simulated outcome of your Invisalign treatment.
Using these images, your dentist fabricates Invisalign aligners that are customized to each stage of your treatment plan. You simply wear your aligners all day — at least 20-22 hours — and then switch to the next set of aligners in your Invisalign package after a week or two.
Each time you advance to the next aligners, you should notice that your teeth are gradually becoming straighter.
What are the benefits of Invisalign?
Since Invisalign aligners are clear, you can smile confidently without a mouthful of metal. You can also easily remove your aligners to eat and drink, as well as to brush and floss with ease. Invisalign is also a beneficial orthodontic solution because:
- It’s more comfortable than traditional braces
- Aligners are easy to maintain and clean
- You can eat whatever you want
The dentists and hygienists at iSmile Dental undergo hours of continuing education for Invisalign every year, so you can feel confident that you’re getting the latest and most advanced treatment available.
How long does an Invisalign plan take?
From start to finish, an Invisalign treatment plan from iSmile Dental takes about a year, as long as you wear your aligners as recommended. If you have more advanced issues, your Invisalign plan may take a little longer, possibly up to 18 months. During this time, you come into the clinic roughly once a month for an evaluation to ensure your treatment is progressing as planned.
